We had booked a fishing cottage for 3 nights in Dec and paid the deposit, only to find on arrival we had been double booked. We dealt with Busi. Thank goodness the owner very kindly found us somewhere to stay down the road, which we were very happy with in the end. We then went to eat dinner there and were extremely disappointed that the lamb shank that we had read about was not available and in fact lots of things weren't on offer. The dinner was very disappointing, the fish dry and not impressed with oven chips.
My husband and I visited The Hatchery for lunch a few days ago. The service was excellent. The food was really delicious. Beautiful deck outside with flower baskets and plenty of tables with lovely views. We sat inside as it was chilly. Very cosy and welcoming inside. Highly recommended for a quiet meal or a social gathering. Thank you!
We spent a night here and found the room very comfortable and the bath and kitchenette clean. The restaurant was a short walk away which was great as I love food on site. Unfortunately there were no vegetarian burgers available so I had veg curry which tasted healthy and filled the gap but needed a bit more oomph. The dam is stunning and we saw a lot of birdlife within a short time, could sit there all day admiring the view, very relaxing. Staff were friendly and helpful.
We only stayed 1 night in the little cozy fishing cottage, it was very basic but all you need! The food was absolutely delicious, we had the eisbein and lamb shank with butternut soup and chicken livers for starters, so YUM! Fishing there was incredible, the size of the trout are insanely huge. Management are very friendly and made us feel right at home. We had a flat Tyre and were there in minutes to assist us. We will definitely go back :)
We had a lovely stay at The Old Hatchery. It is a nice and quietly located lodge hotel right outside Underberg. The Drakensbergen scenery is stunning and can be perfectly enjoyed with The Old Hatchery as a base. Furthermore, I would like to recommend the restaurant. Very friendly and kind staff and the local trout is out of this world! Kind regards, Robin and Dirkje
